Well, it looks like we're going to have some big changes following these protests. The bigger question is, "Will it be enough?"
Time will tell, but nevertheless, statues of our history are being torn down rapidly and Democrat-controlled cities are letting it happen. They're even tearing down statues that shouldn't even be torn down.
One statue was someone who actually helped end slavery.
So to add to this chaotic movement the state of Rhode Island is changing its name to... Rhode Island.
"...Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo signed an executive order on Monday taking the "first steps" to change the state’s full name: "The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations."
The "plantations" part of the name has come under increased scrutiny following widespread protests after the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.
The order, Executive Order 20-48, will change the name to just ‘Rhode Island’ in official communications from the governor’s office – including future executive orders, citations and stationery letterheads. It also calls on all state executive agencies to remove the "plantations" reference from their websites.
The order does not change the state’s official name permanently — that will require voters to amend the Rhode Island Constitution, the order states.
The bill was introduced by Rhode Island’s sole black senator, Harold Metts."
"The word "plantation" has a connotation associated with slavery leading up to the Civil War. Plantations in the Deep South owned by wealthy white landowners often tasked enslaved black Americans to do the fieldwork, 60% of whom picked cotton, according to the Understanding Slavery Initiative."
"A 2010 vote on the same issue came back overwhelmingly against changing the name, with 78% of voters opting to retain the Providence Plantations portion, according to The Providence Journal."
It's interesting how they are suddenly changing it now after the majority didn't seem to care a few years back. But really did anyone know that was their official name? No one I have ever met from Rhode Island has ever spouted out that mouthful, and I doubt even they knew that was their official state name.
